Linking up with Elizabeth today from Life with Elizabeth
for Bridal Talk Tuesday!
Sorry for a late post.. it was a long day at the hospital
today! But good news.. I finish school next week!
Then I will be one very important exam away
from being an RN officially. I cannot wait!
Anyway- like I said in my last post, we were in TN
for Thanksgiving. On Saturday after Thanksgiving
my mom and I hit a few antique stores on the way into town.
I love TN antique stores.. they have the best old vintage stuff.
I found some great stuff!
So far this is the extent of my old blue ball mason jar
collection! These are most likely going to be used
for our outdoor ceremony and then repurposed into the cocktail
hour and reception. But the mason jars will not be centerpieces
on the actual tables. Just the surrounding tables, bar, bathrooms, etc.
I love them.
I must say I have become quite the old blue ball mason
jar expert as I learned a lot about the different logos
and number systems used to identify these jars.
I may or may not just have purchased a #13 Ball
mason jar on ebay for $20. These are highly desired mason jars
as the #13's are very rare! yay!
I also found lots of great milk glass pieces!
This is going to be my favorite part of our centerpieces..
I just know it. They will be scattered
around a larger rectangle wooden box in the center of our tables.
I just love them and how each of them are unique.
This is my favorite one so far.. This one is Fenton and is
quite rare! Can't you tell I'm becoming quite the collector?!
I also found only one of these vintage
fishing floats! I will be buying more of these
to scatter around the reception area. I love
these and can't wait to use them in our house
after the wedding.
This is another one of my favorite pieces!
Ohhh.. these mason jars are just gorgeous!
Can't you just imagine my green and white hydrangeas
and garden roses in these?! ahhh amazing.
I also found quite a few of these little tea lite holders.
Love this vase too!
I will also be scattering around a large
amount of my great grandmothers' milk glass
collection! I love that I'm going to use this as it
will be like having a piece of her there on my day.
I hope you love all my finds! I am loving antiquing
and I am already dying to go again. I can see a lot
of this in my future.. just a tad obsessed.
I hope everyone is having a great week!
